Hiromi Tsuru, who did the Japanese voice for Naomi Hunter in the Metal Gear Solid series has passed away at 57.
Rest in peace.
Peace to the Fallen.
MGS4...... japan version at least ....ended to be a hell of an exclusive -collectible (especially the original black PS3 label)...as it can never be repeated or rereleased by the same people (Hideo Kojima , David Hayter...and rest of voice actors) and never was released on any other console.... also RIP..
Noticed how many MGS voice actors have passed away this year?
Yeah John Cygan, Barry Dennen and now Hiromi Tsuru. Sad year...
Yeah, its sad to know how many of them passed away.
Her voice for Naomi was indeed great, but she was most well known for voicing Bulma from the Dragonball IP entirely, not only in anime but all mediums except those live action movies. RIP Hiromi.
Ah, Bulma... https://data.whicdn.com/ima... She was a talent, to be sure.
True. She also did the voice of Reina in the Yakuza series.
she also did the voice of bulma....dragon ball
Oh my goodness. I saw this and almost posted a duplicate. I may not know the Japanese voice actor but in a sense, it's almost like Metal Gear is literally dying. (and NOT surviving). Only the memory by the fans ("must be passed on to the next generation" - Snake/Raiden) can keep it Fox Alive... Anyways, I got the American's voice actor signature at a recent AWA for Naomi Hunter in Atlanta. So when I initially read the article on MetalGearInformer I was like "OH NOES!" but regardless of who it is... any Metal Gear (Prior Konami's/Kojima departure) actor and contributor should be remembered and loved. Don't forget David Hayter! (In a sense, he was killed off too for MGSV). May Hiromi rest in peace and go to Outer Heaven.
Wait, you got a signature from Jennifer Hale FOR Naomi Hunter??? :) Was watching Rick and Morty there a week ago and there was this blue alien hunter female that Jerry was dating and she was clearly voiced by Hale. That's sad about this voice actor though. :(
I did. I got lucky cause I was sitting in a Sailor Moon panel waiting for it to start when I just saw it on the schedule and ran for it. And blam. Jennifer Hale my fave (since Emma Emmerich) but honestly, I am still saddened by any Metal Gear character/voice actor dying. My name is as it is for a reason!
